HOMEMADE SUMMER MOCKTAILS

August 27, 2017

 

Throwing a party? Having your pals over? Want something refreshing? Guess I got it sorted for you! 

As I'm not supposed to be a fan of anything that has alcohol involved, I still like to drink something refreshing during these warmer days.

Alcohol is something that's not listed in my book and it probably never will because I just don't like the taste of it. In fact, it makes me cringe a bit inside. On rare occasions, I might drink 1 glass but that's basically it.

AND THAT'S WHY MY FRIENDS, there are these amazing mocktails as an alternative WOOOOOOO.

Even though you're a huge ass alcohol lovah, you should still definitely  give these mocktails a go!

They are so easy to make and I feel like there's a good right mixture for everybody as well!

I've actually played around a bit with the ingredients and managed to come up with my own recipe!!! and in my opinion, this one looks and tastes the best (LIKE HOW FANCY SCHMANSY IS THAT PURPLE COLOUR).

And let me tell you guys in true honesty and as a mocktail enthusiast, they are all soooo delicious!
